This course is an introduction to applied statistical methods useful for the analysis of data from all fields. Brief coverage of data summary and graphical techniques will be followed by elementary probability, sampling distributions, the central limit theorem and statistical inference.

Four class hours per week (two will be held in the computer lab). Labs are not interchangeable between sections due to course content.
